Cuomo calls for eliminating CoBIS

Gov. Cuomo’s proposed budget calls for eliminating CoBIS.  Inside the Briefing Booklet (available here), on page 80 under Public Protection and General Government:

Repeal the requirement for a pistol and revolver ballistic identification database, known as CoBIS and replace with a nationally recognized alternative.

It is unclear what alternative he’s referring to.  I suspect it’s NIBIN, but we’ll have to wait for the budget bills to be introduced to see what exactly it is.
